ESPN: How Good is Baltimore's Defense?

How good is the Baltimore defense, and can they stay that good for the entire season? We look at little bit at some weaknesses that could become a problem... although probably not this week. By the way, Baltimore is the second team to be first in both run and pass defense DVOA through six weeks. The first was the 1997 San Francisco 49ers.

I'd like to know how bad the Dolphins offense is at scoring TDs. Is it worse than the 01 Baltimore offense?

Hmm ... looks like someone left out the link to the article itself.

Yeah, I found it here:


It's an Insider article, FWIW.

The answer apparently is 'not good enough to overcome Baltimore's horrible offense'.

Good enough to hold dynamic Jacksonville to twelve points.
